Tilda Swinton, Bennett Miller to Receive Tributes at 2014 Gotham Awards

Actress Tilda Swinton and director Bennett Miller will receive tributes at the Gotham Independent Film Awards, the 24th annual kudofest presented every year by the New York-based Independent Filmmmaker Project (IFP).

Swinton gets this year’s actress tribute for a body of work that includes “Snowpiercer,” “Only Lovers Left Alive” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” — all of which opened this year — as well as “Michael Clayton,” the 2007 feature for which she won an Oscar. Miller, meanwhile, takes the director tribute as he enters awards-season contention with “Foxcatcher,” the wrestling drama that stars Steve Carrell and Channing Tatum.

Swinton and Miller join fellow tributee Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer of Netflix, previously announced as the 2014 recipient of the Gothams’ annual industry tribute.

The Gothams are one of the earliest trophy ceremonies in the film industry’s awards season, and often highlight indie titles that go on to become serious contenders in the Oscar race. “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “The Hurt Locker” are among the films to score early recognition at the Gothams.

The 2014 ceremony is set for Dec. 1 at Cirpriani Wall Street in downtown Manhattan.
